Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

"Think of this dessert as a deconstructed version of a summer pudding, with thinly sliced strawberries macerated in elderflower liqueur and layered between slices of brioche," says Stone. "A dollop of whipped cream on top is a cooling counterpoint to the floral flavours."

Sea scallops with fermented broccoli rabe


You'll need

12 scallops (about 300gm), very thinly sliced horizontally 4 radishes, shaved on a mandolin To serve: extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice and finely chopped chives   Fermented cime di rapa 50 gm sea salt flakes 440 gm (1 bunch) cime di rapa, washed, trimmed, leaves and buds separated, cut into 2cm pieces 60 gm daikon, finely chopped 4 spring onions, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 anchovy fillet, finely chopped 1½ tbsp lemon juice 15 gm Sriracha chilli sauce ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes

Method

  • 01
  • For fermented cime di rapa, combine salt and 2 litres water in a non-reactive container, add cime di rapa and soak for 1 hour. Squeeze excess liquid from cime di rapa, transfer to a bowl with remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly, squeezing and pressing with your hands to create a wet mix, then add salt to taste. Transfer to a clean non-reactive container to fit snugly and press to remove air pockets. Weight down with a lid that fits perfectly inside container to cover and compress mixture. Cover with muslin and set aside in a warm place for 3 days to ferment. When fermented, drain, finely chop, and refrigerate in an airtight container until required. Makes about 1 cup. Fermented cime di rapa will keep refrigerated for 2 months.
  • 02
  • Arrange scallops on serving plates, spoon over a little fermented cime di rapa, arrange radish on top, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice, scatter with chives and serve.
This recipe is from the March 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“We love kimchi at Torrisi and thought long and hard on how to make it jive with what we do with our menu,” says Carbone. “We came up with the idea of taking a flowering Italian vegetable, broccoli rabe [also known as cime di rapa], that’s reminiscent of cabbage and fermenting it with anchovies, chillies and garlic.” You’ll need to begin this recipe 3 days ahead.
